BP successfully completes deepwater appraisal aell off Brazil
Itaipu-2 encountered strong shows on drilling including elevated gas, gas wetness and fluorescence within the cuttings. Well logging indicates a fluid contact within the target Upper Sag reservoir comprising a 19 metre gross petroleum-bearing interval overlying good quality porous water-bearing carbonates.
Neil Piggott, BP vice president for exploration Brazil, said: "Further logging operations are on-going and will need to be integrated into the overall interpretation. The next piece of critical appraisal work at Itaipu will focus on retrieving a high quality fluid sample plus evaluating the producibility of the reservoir".
BP is the operator of BM-C-32 with a 40% equity. Other equity holders are Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (33.3%) and Maersk Energia Ltda (26.7%).
